Tikal: Jungle Lodge

Jungle Lodge

The basic Jungle Lodge is in Tikal's archaeological park, right beside the entrance to the ruins themselves. This is undoubtedly its main attraction - it's the only hotel this close; there are a couple of back-packer hostels but otherwise the nearest option is a 45-minute drive away.

The simple, fan-cooled rooms are in whitewashed bungalows dotted around a large tropical garden, where given the tropical jungle setting you may spot monkeys, toucans and other wildlife. There's little beyond the basic amenities, but our inspections have found the rooms to be clean. Electricity cuts off from 9.30pm until 5am; gasoline lamps are provided.

There is also a small but attractive swimming pool: a boon after a hot and tiring day looking round the ruins. The restaurant serves traditional buffet fare, or you could choose to eat at other small establishments nearby.

What our experts say

Fantastic location which allows guests the opportunity to experience Tikal at sunrise and sunset when most visitors have either left or not yet arrived. These are the best times to see wildlife and the overall vibe is magical.
